review by
Mike Haberfelner

All of his life, William (Kyle Brookes) has been a good Christian, so eventually becoming the local church's organist was a logical step, really. Likewise was to host a religious TV show on public access television togehter with his wife. Thing is, his wife has recently left him for another man, and he feels crushed. Then he meets a young woman, Tina (Sophia Leanne Kelly), who needs only a handful of Pounds to get out of a squeeze, and he helps her out. Now she's nothing like him, she's loud-mouthed, swears a lot, and her slutty attire doesn't go with his conservative style - but despite them being polar opposites, they take an instant liking to one another. So much so in fact that Tina invites William over to a party to hers, a party he doesn't enjoy one bit due to the open alcohol and drug abuse, the loud music and the rather shameless behaviour of Tina and her friends. But that party leaves Tina in a bind, as she has promised her dealer Dan (Macaulay Cooper) to pay for the stuff he's brought by, but when he comes to collect the next day, she doesn't have the money, nor do any of her friends - so ultimately she has to ask William, who agrees to give her the money, but in exchange for her turning her life around ... and that includes her moving in with him (not for sexual favours though, she's got her own room) and trying to get a job. In her desparation, Tina agrees, and the experiment seems to work out ok at first. But there's still Dan: Now Tina thinks she has paid him when she left the money for him on the dinner table of her old home, but her "best friend" Seb (Alessio Tornese) has actually swiped the money, leaving her in a bind - a situation that can only lead to disaster ...


A pretty impressive drama that welcomely doesn't try to sell any pre-fabricated point of view (so much so that the ending is left wide open) but gets its effect from storytelling, and even there it's not necessarily the few louder, more spectacular scenes that suck one in, but the subtleties, the things that are said between the lines. And Kyle Brookes and Sophia Leanne Kelly sure give it their all, making the chemistry between their very different characters palpable, supported by a very able cast, and carried by a directorial effort that's just light-footed enough to make things flow beautifully and make this an awesome watch.
